Abstract:Lipomyelocele is the most common occult spinal dysraphism. However, it can rarely be associated with aberrant tissues such as bone--making it one of the rarest of spinal dysraphism type, called as "osseous dysraphic hamartoma." The authors report such a rare case of lipomyelocele with osseous dysraphic hamartoma. CT and MRI play a complimentary role in accurate diagnosis of this rare dysraphism. Detection of aberrant bone helps plan the surgery.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
